Second time I've eaten at this particular El Rancho. Absolutely flavorless. Tacos were just ground hamburger with zero seasoning. Stingey with the cheese. Salsa was bland and this very bizzare tasting house sauce served in bottles was horrid - tasted like sweetened vinegar with some vague pepperish taste. Won't be going back. Oh, the service was competent, I'll give them... More

First of all, you must know El Ranco is self-professed BAR & grill. The food is alright, but, what a miserable dining experience! As soon as we hit the door I noticed a slight odor of tobacco smoke. We had arrived before our friends so we waited in an area just inside the restaurant in close proximity to the bar.... More

This place is comparable to the seating and ordering of other fast food restaurants but the food is, in my opinion, several notches above what you usually find in such places. It is small and dress code is casual, The prices are very reasonable and they have a sauce bar so you can make it as spicy as you like.

The service was fast and friendly. The lunch special was so cheap for the amount and quality that I consider this a steal! The chips and salsa were 4/5. The chips were good and crisp and the salsa had great flavor! Could have had a little more spice but overall really good!

What a great Mexican restaurant. Great atmosphere makes you think you are in a Mexican hacienda as you enjoy great food with Mexican music playing in the background. This is where you will find the locals. Service is fast, food is delicious with large portions and the prices are very reasonable.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Biloxi, Miss., on a trip with my younger sister. We had eaten at our hotel for a couple of days and decided to venture out on the town and chose El Rancho Mexican Restaurant and we were very pleased. Our waiter Luiz was fabulous and friendly and offered suggestions as to what we... More

pretty good food, for Mexican food in Mississippi. Didn't expect it to be as good as the Mexican food in Texas, but it came close, and their ice tea is served in a small pitcher instead of a glass, SO CUTE!

My friends and I discovered the cheap deals they have. We found two buck margaritas and dollar tacos the day we went! The interior is well decorated. Our server wasn't overly friendly, but for those prices... we didn't mind. Everything else was great.

Probably the best taco tuesday that I have experienced. The tacos were delicious and the margaritas made dangerous.
